Item-106:  Centering Prayer & World Transformation, Kess Frey (2-disc DVD Set)

Length:  166 mins.



Drawing from ideas in his writings, Kess talks about centering prayer and world transformation. This involves the creation and transformation of our separate individual worlds as we grow from the consciousness of the human condition and our false self into that of our true Self or life in Christ. We tend to see the world through the eyes of our desires and issues, our assumptions and conditioning.  As the unconscious roots of these perspectives are changed by the divine action working in us, the individual world of our conscious experience in daily life also changes.

World transformation in this context also involves the evolution of a non-dual, unified planetary consciousness, such as that suggested by the French Jesuit priest, theologian and scientist, Pierre Tielhard de Chardin.  Kess discusses our spiritual journey and how Centering Prayer facilitates this.

Kess' remarks were recorded during a conference on March 7, 2015 at St Joseph Catholic Church, Richardson, Texas.
